MultiTech Unites with Future, ARM and Aeris to Host the “IoT – Prototype to Production Workshop”

Mountain View, Calif. – May 18, 2015 Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. a leading global manufacturer of M2M and IoT devices, today announced its sponsorship of the “IoT-Prototype to Production Workshop,” on June 18, 2015 from 10am to 3pm PT at Hacker DoJo, a community of hackers and startups located in Mountain View, California.  The workshop is co-sponsored with Future Electronics, ARM® and Aeris.

Programmers and tech professionals attending “IoT – Prototype to Production Workshop” will learn how to prototype, and develop an IoT project by incorporating the necessary hardware, transport/connectivity and chips. ARM experts will discuss the ARM mbed™ IoT Device Platform and explain how its community of 100,000+ developers are taking products to market with speed and efficiency. Delegates will learn about the platform’s ecosystem of interoperable development solutions, components and services, and learn how to crowd source libraries for sensors and peripherals using a cloud based IDE. They will also get advice on moving data from an edge sensor/processor to a cloud platform as a service using a cellular module.

A pre-lab webinar will be held one week prior to the event to go over the necessary prep work for all participants at the workshop, which will include three hands-on demonstrations:

  • SMS software: This lab will explore how to send an SMS from a flexible software platform to say, “Hello World.”
  • Sensor tech: This lab will explore the creation of something like an alcohol monitoring sensor, which can be used to sense your blood-alcohol percentage.
  • Moisture sensor: This lab will explore how to publish information to the platform as a service using, for example, moisture levels in soil.

“In the fast-evolving world of the Internet of Things, solutions need to be responsive, innovative and nimble. Participants will learn how to get their IoT commercial solutions up and running using provided hardware platforms and to create new connected prototypes with the help of professionals from Future, ARM and Aeris, ” said Michael Finegan, Director of Business Development at MultiTech. 

Programmers, product managers and engineers are encouraged to attend to learn how to build successful business practices and avoid critical pitfalls of IoT development. Attendees will receive a development kit and data plan for prototyping purposes.

Instructors include leading executives from MultiTech, Future, ARM and Aeris. Registration can be made at:
